West Shore RCMP say officers are looking to speak with a man who put on a red ski mask and pulled out a pocketknife while waiting at a bus stop.
On Nov. 1 around 6:20 p.m., two 13 and 14-year-old girls were waiting at a bus stop on Craigflower Road near Aral Road and a male suspect was also at the stop.
The man then reached into his backpack, pulled out a red ski mask and put it on, then pulled out a small pocket knife.
The two teens were scared and ran away. One of the youth says she looked back and saw the man running after them yelling “come back.”
When she looked back a second time he was gone.
The man is described as an Indigenous male about 20 years old, 5’10 with a medium build and chubby face, wearing light blue baggy pants, a belt with a sparkling diamond belt buckle, high top red and green Jordan shoes, black hoodie with black backpack.
“We do not know what the intentions of this suspect was but this is certainly concerning and suspicious behaviour,” said Cpl. Nancy Saggar, West Shore RCMP media relations officer.
“We are asking the male suspect to come forward and speak to police.”
Anyone in the area at the time who witnessed the incident, or who may have dash cam footage is asked to contact the West Shore RCMP at 250-474-2264.
